WrongSizeGlass writes “The AP is reporting that the US Army Corps of Engineers has uncovered what appears to be the fourth major disposal area for World War I-era munitions and chemical weapons in the nation’s capital. Digging was suspended at a construction site after ‘workers pulled smoking glassware from the pit — preliminary tests show the glassware was contaminated with the toxic chemical arsenic trichloride. … Workers also discovered a jar about three-quarters full of a dark liquid that turned out to be the chemical agent mustard.’ Someone needs to remind our government of the meaning of NIMBY.”
